Alcatel-Lucent is to provide global engineering contractor JGC Corporation and its subsidiary, PT JGC Indonesia, with advanced communications technology for a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant they are constructing in Indonesia for PT Donggi-Senoro LNG (DSLNG).
Alcatel-Lucent’s provision of a fully integrated communications and security system will enhance the safety and security of workers at the plant, while at the same time improving operational efficiency through the application of state-of-the-art data networks.
DSLNG provides an opportunity to develop gas reserves that have been stranded for many decades. Indonesia’s national energy company PT Pertamina and PT Medco Energi Internasional, Tbk., together with international companies, namely Mitsubishi Corporation and Korea Gas Corporation, took the initiative to develop those gas reserves. The high-bandwidth communications network will support real-time delivery of essential system performance data, including management and notification of potential issues, providing the company all the information it needs to remotely monitor and maintain the plant.
Donggi-Senoro is the fourth LNG complex in Indonesia and production will begin in the fourth quarter 2014. The plant will receive feed gas from the gas fields of Senoro-Toili and Matindok in the region and deliver LNG to Japanese Power companies Chubu Electric and Kyushu Electric as well as Korea Gas Corporation.
Mr. Tokutaro Nomura, Executive Officer, Senior Manager of Procurement Department, International Project Division of JGC Corporation said: “We are pleased to be working with Alcatel-Lucent again as our reliable telecommunication systems supplier on this project. Alcatel-Lucent has excellent expertise and industry-leading project management skills for the integration of telecommunication systems. We expect this project to confirm a long-lasting working relationship.”
Rajeev Singh-Molares, President of Alcatel-Lucent Asia-Pacific said: “Alcatel-Lucent is building a world-class communications system for Donggi-Senoro. The system will make the operations more efficient and deliver the vital security an energy facility needs.”
Alcatel-Lucent will provide a complete communications system integrating its enterprise-optimised local area network (LAN) and IP-PABX phone systems. Alcatel-Lucent also will integrate a variety of equipment from third-party suppliers, including TETRA-based UHF radio with tower/shelter, VHF radio systems, CCTV monitoring, public alarm/general alarm (PA/GA) system, video conference system, access and gate control system, ship-to-shore communication system and a weather monitoring system.
Alcatel-Lucent will provide its market-leading services capabilities including system design, project management and supervision of installation and commissioning, documentation, procurement, integrated testing and logistics.
